The 2014 Nissan Altima®

The 2014 Nissan Altima®



We made
a big deal,
even of the
little things

Detailed. Right down to the details.
Chrome’s appeal lies in its deeply reflective qualities. Even distant objects look as sharp reflected in chrome as they would if you were looking at them directly. A fine point admittedly, but it shows you how much thought we put into even the smallest details, starting with our badge. Just wait ‘til you see what we did to the rest.

Premium Space.
Premium Spaciousness.

Luxury interior design.
We softened the edges, sculpted the lines and took the idea of open space inside. Then we quieted everything down. The result - a serene cabin of unexpected spaciousness and luxury, where premium materials combine to create an atmosphere of class that is simply a class above.


The most beautiful
Altima you’ve ever built

Stunning exterior design.
The premium exterior design of the Altima is achieved through laser-measured panel fit and and sculpted steelwork. But to really appreciate what we built-in to our most innovative Altima ever, you’ll need to finish it - your way.

Go. Or just go farther.

Outstanding acceleration. Incredible efficiency.
You’ve got choices. You can go with Nissan’s legendary 3.5-liter, 270-hp V6 that treats you to sports-car style performance even while it sips fuel at an impressive 31 MPG on the highway. [*] Or you can go with the class-leading 38 MPG highway provided by the spirited 182-hp 4-cylinder. [*]

The Altima’s CVT virtually eliminates gears by using a single metal belt that runs around a pair of variable-diameter pulleys. Once a transmission isn’t limited by fixed gears, it can operate far more effectively. So whatever your right foot asks for, CVT responds with the perfect engine speed.

Active understeer control
Altima’s Active Understeer Control system sets even the sharpest turn straight. It works by braking the inside wheels for better control through corners for a more confident feel behind the wheel.

Redesigned rear suspension
Altima’s 370Z®-inspired multilink rear suspension has been designed to deliver instant steering response and maximum tire contact for handling that’ll tackle the passing lane as easily as the carpool lane.

ZF Sachs shocks
Altima comes equipped with ZF Sachs shock absorbers. You know, like the ones found on luxury cars from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche... Yeah, those ones.

Lighter. Faster. Stronger.
We gave Altima class-leading highway fuel economy [*] and powerful acceleration. How did we do it? We put it on a diet. The engine, body, and chassis are all lighter, and we slimmed down the aerodynamics. The result—hit the gas and Altima will propel you from 0-60 faster than you can say "hang on".

We built the Altima to slip through the air with more ease and less resistance than ever because frankly, drag is a drag.


Hit the gas and the Altima will propel you from 0-60 faster than you can say "hang on".


Altima is one of a select group of Nissan vehicles to wear the PUREDRIVE™ badge. PUREDRIVE™ is a key part of our commitment to achieve lower levels of CO2 emissions. The technology focuses on improving fuel efficiencies and reducing CO2 emissions. And that’s something we all can smile about.

Street smarts

Intelligent technology
What if your car could tell you when its tires had enough air? If it warmed itself up or cooled itself down for you without you even being there? Or turned on the headlights automatically in the rain? Would you call it smart, or simply brilliant?

Zero Gravity Seats
NASA research determined the posture astronauts naturally take in the weightlessness of space. Nissan Engineering used this research to develop front seats that optimize comfort and reduce fatigue. Thanks for the tip guys.

Safety Shield

Altima’s got your back...

Like every Nissan vehicle, Altima comes equipped with a suite of standard safety, driving, and convenience features designed to inspire confidence behind the wheel, and help make every ride better, safer, and more enjoyable.

Click on + to explore more safety features.

  1. Monitor

    • Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy-Fill Tire Alert TPMS uses an icon on your dash to notify you when tires aren’t properly inflated. On certain trims, the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display tells you which specific tires are low. As you fill your tires, Easy-Fill Tire Alert lets you know—with a friendly beep—when they’ve got enough air. [*]

    • Smart Auto Headlights Available Smart Auto Headlights turn on automatically in the dark, or after four swipes if you activate your wipers. They also know to switch on if you drive into a tunnel, but are clever enough to stay off in the shade. Pretty smart for headlights. You might even say brilliant.

    • RearView Monitor and Moving Object Detection (MOD) When backing-up, the available RearView Monitor shows you what’s directly behind you. [*] When paired with the available MOD, you’ll get visual and audible alerts if the system detects something moving behind your vehicle while in reverse. [*]

    • Available Lane Departure Warning (LDW) & Available Blind Spot Warning (BSW) If you unintentionally begin to stray from your lane, LDW lets you know with audio and visual alerts. [*] When a vehicle is detected in the blind spot area, BSW indicators illuminate. If the turn signal is activated when a vehicle is detected, you’ll also hear a chime to alert you of its presence. [*]

  2. Respond

    • Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) & Traction Control System (TCS) When it detects oversteer or understeer, VDC can reduce engine power and apply brake pressure to specific wheels. Working with VDC, TCS can sense front-wheel spin and reduce throttle to help keep you on your steered path. [*]

    • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) When you need to stop in a hurry, the Anti-lock Braking System pumps the brakes faster than you possibly can, helping to prevent wheel lockup and maintain steering control.

    • Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD), & Brake Assist Should you ever need to hit the brakes hard, Brake Assist will help you come to a quicker stop by applying maximum braking force. If you’ve got passengers or cargo in the back, EBD will detect the added weight, and send extra force to the rear brakes.

  3. Protect

    • Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) The AABS includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant classification sensor. Their inflation rate adjusts based on crash severity and seat belt usage. [*]

    • Supplemental Air Bags Built into the front seats, two side-impact supplemental air bags move with you as you adjust your seating position. Above, roofmounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags help provide head protection for outboard occupants. [*]

    • LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) LATCH is another way we’re working to keep children safe. The system lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints without having to use seat belts or a locking chip.

    • Snug Kids

      Snug Kids®Nissan safety engineers have dedicated thousands of hours to evaluating hundreds of child restraints in Nissans. The result: an industry first, The SnugKids® Child Safety Seat Fit Guide. This guide lists child seats that fit the rear seats of Nissan vehicles, as well as offers invaluable tips on correct installation. Look for the latest Fit Guide at

...And ready to light
the way forward.
